Winter Care Help Needed!
I am really hoping someone can help me.
I changed my garden and planted some plants (listed below) in August and last night it snowed. I live in Stevenage, Hertfordshire and we now expect it to snow more this year, however we didn’t expect it as early. I am not very green fingered but I want to try and ensure my plants last the winter and live so that I can enjoy them next year.
They have not been in the ground long, I only planted in August and so I need to know how best to care for them. This morning they were covered in snow, I removed as much as I could and I have covered them with black bags after advise from my neighbour but I am worried this will kill them! Please help!
I have recently planted the following:
Phoenix Roebelenii Pygmy Palm
Buxus Sempervirens Topiary
Do I cover them? If so with what?
If I do not cover them, will they be ok with snow and ice?
Do I water them throughout the winter? Or not at all?
Thanking you in advance! x
